    Bob Clark- Editor-in-Chief of Washington State University Press, former Assistant Director/Publisher at the University of Oklahoma and Former past President and Owner of Arthur H. Clark Company


    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:


    Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre.  With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.

    A Night Of Ashes and Ghosts Episode

    in Entertainment

    The Dungeon Crawlers Team welcomes to the show Thomas Beckett who will be talking about Night of Ashes. Night of Ashes is a Theatrical Prequel to Hell's Rebels, the current Pathfinder Adventure Path from Paizo Publishing which takes place during the events immediately preceding In Hell's Bright Shadow, the first adventure in Hell's Rebels. Working with the Paizo team, we are using NPCs, locations and plot points from the Adventure Path to recreate the traumatic events leading up to Barzillai Thrune's take over of the city of Kintargo.


    The show centers on a young Hellknight who is conflicted between her commitment to the Law and her commitment to her City. When Grand Inquisitor Thrune orders her companion killed and an entire Opera Company arrested alongside a young Baron, she is forced to keep the actors from further harm and lead them to safety. The survival of this small band intermingle with the machinations of the arch villain of the Adventure Path.


    The show will be as audience interactive as possible and feature steel on steel fight choreography by an award-winning local fight choreographer.


    The Kickstarter launches 8/27/2015
    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/346863196/1232471340?token=51be328a.


    Then the Dungeon Crawlers Team will wrap up the show with the Ghostbusters of Salt Lake.


    The Ghostbusters of Salt Lake, organized in 2007, are Utah's premier professional paranormal investigators and eliminators.
    You're likely to run into the GB's of SLC at screenings, comic and sci/fi conventions, costume parties, and charity events.

    Author Susana Tuya Sarmiento on Write Now Radio!

    in Writing

    2pm ET / 1pm CT / 12pm MT / 11am PT


    (Outside US: Dial 00 + 1 + 714-464-4891)


    Viki Winterton interviews Susana Tuya Sarmiento! 


    Susana is an international celebrity speaker, TV presenter and #1 Best-Selling Author. With women’s interests at heart and over twenty-five years of background experience in Body and Self-Image Psychology, Fashion, Styling, Personal Branding and Holistic Wellbeing, Susana delivers cutting-edge, life-enhancing tools and techniques.


    Susana’s life in 2013 came to a total halt. After increasingly becoming chronically ill and being later diagnosed with ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), she experienced a complete body lockdown for a year, unable to move due to the intensity of muscle and nerve pain.


    Susana’s entire journey was documented so she could later transform the lives of others and gift us with her life-changing pearls of wisdom. From the hidden signs that we are ignoring daily that led to a healthy, happy and high energy woman to contract an autoimmune disease (amongst the top 10 leading causes of death in women), has come her knowledge of how to break the odds, NOT self-abandon, nor ignore the messages from inner guidance, heart and body and how it is only ‘us’ who hold the key to our self- healing.


    Susana lives her message and it is a true testament to her life-calling experience to lead and inspire women to look, feel and thrive to their greatness.
